I hope everyone enjoyed the recent warm weather, as it looks like North Carolina is in store for another arctic blast. Forecast for the mountain counties are calling for below freezing temperatures for up to 96 continuous hours this week. As the last cold spell reminded us, these bitter cold temperatures can cause real havoc for our workplace plumbing, and leaky pipes can pose a real risk to our records, especially any that we have stored in basements. During this round of cold weather, take a few minutes to inspect your plumbing and review your disaster response plan. If you discover that you have do have records stored near pipes, or in the basement, consider relocating the records if possible or at least elevating your records off of the floor.
In the unfortunate event that you do have a plumbing emergency threaten your records, please let us know as we can offer assistance.
